Re: First fly cast in garden lol
LLL keep us informed on how you are doing.
Try to keep the line/leader/fly from hitting the water while casting and try to lay the whole thing out as softly as possible. It will spook the fish big time
A longer leader (9') is good for most rivers. Then lay the line out soft with the leader and fly just dropping on the water with little disterbance, then let it drift to the fish.
However a lot of fish will hit the minute the fly touches down.
Just remember gentle, and as little water disturbance as possible.
